Judie Bomberger

Judie Bomberger retired at age 50, and began working with scrap metal in her garage. She began to create whimsical character sculptures for the garden, as well as for inside the house. When she had enough art to fill her garage, she decided to debut her work at her local Farmer's Market.

It was greeted with joyous enthusiasm; her work made people smile and laugh! With all of the fanfare, it became clear that Judie's adventure had turned into yet another career, and she recruited some family members to help in her endeavor.

Years later, Judie has hundreds of designs, all infused with her humor and imagination.

    Comments about FLYING GARDEN STAKE:

    This item is such a pretty thing & great idea but what is with the rust? I just received this today to give my Mom as a Mother's Day gift for her garden but now don't want to because the rust makes it look like something that has already been used out in the elements! I am disappointed because it wasn't cheap and the rust makes it look cheap. I would not recommend to anyone.

      We live in a windy region and the swivel action brings the garden to life! I love it! We haven't gotten to the weather resistant or fading point yet, but it looks like it will last a good long time. I loved it so much when I gave it away as a gift that I bought one myself!

        Well made, nice design.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The box this product was shipped in had very little packing material. The box arrived severely dented, and the product inside was slightly bent. There were only a couple pieces of crumpled up paper in the box as cushioning. I understand the need for environmentally conscious packing, but this product needed more packing in order to prevent damage. Previously ordered things have arrived safely, so I was disappointed in the condition of this package.

        I thought the design was very cute. The butterfly and dragonfly were very colorful. The pole and the metal parts were already rusty though, which was disappointing.

        Came with rust already on it and doesn't spin but adds beautiful color to the vegetable garden it is in!

          Got this as a gift for my mother-in-law, she loved it! It looks great in her butterfly garden! I would definitely buy this for myself or someone else as a gift! (Almost kept it instead of giving as a mother's day gift!)

            This was a affordable gift for my mom. It was unusual, colorful, and well recieved. For the money, I felt it was an excellent craft, made here in the US.
